I then cast a sartorial eye over the offerings on the Wallis website whilst spending a gift card recently and still opted for something else, but it was of the sequin variety so I forgave myself.
Then there was the small matter of the Michael Kors sale at The Outnet last week and after a recent "shall I or shan't I" episode over a pink stripe Kors jumper which subsequently sold out, I didn't want to take any chances with anything that took my eye from the king of upper east side luxe.
First I toyed with a leather trimmed trench and then I spotted a long coveted poncho. With a style that covers a multitude of sins, it was finally time to bring out my inner "spaghetti western" and make my way to checkout.
A little google "campaign MK poncho" searching proved that a faux fur snood is obligatory to add a touch of glamour to your look and I need no excuses to add some more fluffiness to my wardrobe........
I ordered it on Thursday was expecting it on Friday, but alas it still hasn't arrived, so I guess today could be the day and in a perfect world, I would be wearing it with a few lust worthy pieces.......

Would you wear one or would it make you feel like Clint Eastwood?
